Biennale College

Biennale College is the project by La Biennale di Venezia dedicated to training and supporting young artists in all the artistic fields and in the specific activities of La Biennale’s organizational structure. Already operating in the Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Music, Theatre Departments and the Historical Archive, Biennale College was conceived with the ambition to promote young talents, offering them the opportunity to work closely with international mentors to develop “creations” that will become part of the programmes of the artistic Departments.
